Top nature crafts to try with your children
So, 5 of our favourite nature crafts:
Ostentatiously an Autumn Craft (great to make with lovely Autumn coloured leaves), you can of course make these all year round. Many trees do NOT loose their leaves throughout winter and our park usually has plenty lying around. It is a great craft, as you do it whilst you are out and about and literally all you need is LEAVES! Easy peasy.
Flower pressing is definitely one of those "childhood classics" that every child should experience one day. It is all about exploration and experiment with how different flowers and leaves press. Then get creative. In this post we share simple tips to make your flower pressing more successful!
We LOVE making fairy houses... such a cute way to explore nature. What things can you find in you area that makes a good house? Great for "building" skills and experimenting how to put things together.
Fairy House (or Elf House!)
10 Stick CraftsYep... we got together and found not one, not two but TEN stick crafts for you to get busy with. Sticks are everywhere and the kids love to pick them up at ANY time of year. Perfect craft material and cheap too!
Lavender wands are simply gorgeous! They smell great and make GREAT gifts for family and friends or if you have a little girl as I do, they also make great whimsical fairy wands! All you need is plenty of lavender and some ribbon. Simple cut around 17-21 fresh long lavender stems, and use a weaving technique with the ribbon to build your wand. More details are here.
